Easy walk.a few steps. Saw Jewish Quarter good information re history. Given history of Vienna including royal family buildings how city is build above Roman ruins. Saw an example of this. Ended at St Stephens Cathedral which was very impressive and were in an area to continue looking around and get meals etc.

Memorable!

Our guide, Marina was so thoughtful in the information she shared with us about lovely Vienna. She pointed out so many interesting locations that not only gave a fuller view of the city’s history, but also filled us in on the culture and variety of the people. Marina was easy to follow as she was loud enough to hear even in the noisiest streets.
